LARIS Contemporary Dining David Laris Opens HK Restaurant

[23/01/13] 

David Laris, the eponymous chef behind Laris at Three on the Bund, has opened a formidable Hong Kong restaurant. LARIS Contemporary Dining doesn't have a particular style but it serves well seasoned fare that's normally big on flavour. It's difficult to eat 'Western' in HK and not spend over HK$400/head and this place is no different... but at least you walk out feeling well looked after, rather than looked after by your pervy, handsy, old uncle.

There's a wide variety of flavour notes on the menu. Highlights include crab with avocado salsa and lemongrass gazpacho; char grilled ribeye beef, triple fried potato, truffle butter, morel mushroom and vinegar spray; pan fried trout with beans, asparagus, gnocchi and brown butter - the list goes on. Mains are HK$200-390 but they also offer a very reasonable lunch menu - two course for HK$140 - and they serve a 7-course tasting menu at night for HK$788. As long as you can steer your girlfriend onto that rather than the a la carte, you're laughing.

The restaurant itself is a nice place to be. In fact, it's the type of place you should book for a Friday business lunch if you're dining with someone who likes a drink. Their wine list comprises over 200 labels, mostly from Australia and New Zealand, so you can just roll through your afternoon appointments. They also have a little bar which serves cocktails and it's right on Wyndham Street so it's a good feeding/watering hole before a night out. Your burps will taste delicious.

Open wide.
